SAN DIEGO - A California federal judge on Jan. 5 granted a bank's request to assert counterclaims against borrowers and to add various counterdefendants to an action in which property owners assert claims for violation of California's unfair competition law (UCL), the Truth in Lending Act (TILA) and other causes of action, finding that amendment would not prejudice the claimants (Rick J. Hinrichsen, et al. v. Quality Loan Service Corporation, et al., No. 16cv0690, S.D. Calif.; 2017 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 1670).
